Successful applications for the Cochrane Review Group Networks Innovation Fund 2019

The Cochrane Review Group (CRG) Networks Innovation Fund aims to support review production and/or editorial procedures that lead to harmonization of processes and improvements in content or quality across the CRG Networks and the Cochrane Library.

We received 10 applications from across the CRG Networks community and the applications were assessed by an external Committee consisting of Gert van Valkenhoef (Cochrane CET, ITS), Jimmy Volmink and Paul Garner (Editorial Board), Joanne McKenzie and Miranda Langendam (Methods Executive), using a pre-defined evaluation criterion.

The top five applications as judged by the Committee will be funded and they showcase a variety of innovative solutions to improve processes within Cochrane as well as quality and content of Cochrane Reviews.
